The Serenade of Nature

Listen to the serenade of nature singing the Song of God. The voice that floats on the wings of the wind, to those who are able to hear, is Love's celestial Song of Love that will drive away all fears. --Old Native Hawaiian Fisherwoman

Nature is in continuous melody. The stream that flows has a million voices that calm, challenge, and move us with a rhythm that augments our own. The wind in all its forms reminds us that we are not alone in the world, and whether it caresses the sweat from our bodies or levels us with its enormous power, we hear the voice of God. The earth itself responds to our listening and sends us the whispers that only the practiced ear can record.

Only when we are one with all of nature will fear change to serenity.

From "Native Wisdom for White Minds" by Anne Wilson Schaef
